Description [Suggest Change]

Start at the top of the tree ramp. From here traverse left along the face, there is a nice rail about midway along the face for your hands, but the feet are crystal nubs. When you get to the bolt, there is a thin ripple rising up and to the left. Step onto the ripple and match feet to high-step about 4' up the ripple (crux). You'll have basically no hands as you roll over onto the high-step, but there is a small crimp directly above the foot which lets you get to stand and reach a series of jugs on a wide left-facing flake (should take a #1 or #2). After getting off the face, its a long moderate runout on the slab up to a very dirty bulge with some narrow crimps to the finish in the trees.

Location [Suggest Change]

40' left of Rum Doodle. Start at the very top of the tree ramp, moving left onto the face.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolt at crux, no top anchors.
